    If you use the TV to select the MCL2AV’s TAPE input using SHIFT MENU 6, and then press MENU to turn on the TV screen, does it show that the TV is receiving an A.AUX source or A.TAPE source?

    Had a little time for testing this today. tried it with different setups and commands:

    BC6 opt. 2 +1611 + iphone

    Activating with audio command (Radio/CD/A.tape). No text on tv about source. Menu can be selected, but source is not in the headline of the menu as it is for the video sources.

    BC6 opt. 2 +1611 + MCL2AV opt. 2.5 + iphone

    Activating with Shift + Radio + 6 command. No text on tv about source. Menu can be selected, but source is not in the headline of the menu as it is for the video sources.

    BC6 opt. 2 +1611 + MCL2AV opt 2.5 + BC3500.

    Activating with A.tape command. No text on tv about source. Menu can be selected, but source is not in the headline of the menu as it is for the video sources.

    So at least for my setup the TV won’t show the audio source. Don’t know if it’s different with a proper audiomaster connencted.

    BL3500 in L.OPT 1, 2, 5 or 6/MCL2AV in L.OPT 0 BL3500 plays TAPE input sound whatever audio source is selected on remote – there is no separate selection/control of TAPE or CD inputs.

    BC6 opt. 2 +1611 + MCL2AV opt 0 + BC3500.

    No control of BC3500, and music started manually on the BC3500’s button music is playing regardless which audio command I use to activate the BC6 (A.tape/cd/radio/shift+Radio 6 or 7), so sounds like some of the same behaviour you are experiencing.

    Looking at the MCL2 handbook, option 0 is mentioned for the MCL2AV, but no use case is mentioned. Our experiments seems to show that it just opens the audio ports and passes sound through in this option setting.
